    Such a cool car. Can't believe how far back the engine seems to sit, almost looks like its half in the cabin!!!

    Good lord! I'd love a V8 in my E30! Did you notice much difference for the money between the M62 and S62?

    That looks quite the handful! I'm in the process of readying an m52b28 drop for next year as it's supposedly an easy fit, but this is definitely something on my to do list if I did venture over to an S engine.
